Sakura Of America - Power To Express


Gelly Roll® Gold Shadow™ gives handwriting a touch of elegance and glamour. This incredible gel pen writes in two tones: gold metallic outlined by a contrasting ink color.

How It Works
Gelly Roll Gold Shadow™ is comprised of dyestuff and metallic powder. Dyestuff is the colorful ink that outlines the writing. Metallic powder gives the ink its shiny, gold coloring. When you write with Gold Shadow™, the dyestuff colorant spreads and permeates into the paper. The metallic powder is thick and cannot spread or soak into the paper so it is left on the surface. This ink produces an “outline effect” when the dyestuff colorant spreads beyond the edges of the metallic powder. This is most noticeable after 2-3 minutes on papers that are white, uncoated, and fibrous.
